Sarah Felis by Lee Jones for Alium Cult in Nottingham

To Nottingham with Alium Cult.

I’ve neglected this blog a little recently because I’ve been pushing my OnlyFans and doing other shit and I am only one person. So forgive me, and here we go with some words and photos coming right the fuck at you.

This weekend I headed down to Nottingham to shoot a bunch of content for Alium Cult – a collective of models identifying as disabled, intersectional feminists. Their goal is to provide a positive, safe and inclusive community for those of all abilities. Want to know more? Check out their website here and support ‘em via Patreon here!

I arrived in Nottingham and I think this is my first day time visit having only ever passed through on a night bus. As we headed straight to the airbnb I didn’t really get chance to experience it properly, as my first impressions were that it resembled a second hand Sheffield… maybe I’ll have to go back and give it a fair go.

The plan was for those able to to arrive at 4pm and we’d all crack on with the shoots in the different rooms available to us. Unfortunately, plans don’t always go as expected and with some last minute cancellations and everyone else running late, me and Sarah just cracked on and shot a set of photos making the most of the house being empty.

Annoyingly my card corrupted itself which I think is the first time this has happened at a shoot so I chucked it to the side incase I could recover the files later and used a spare for the rest of the shoots. Obviously as this is a photo blog I did recover some files! So here’s a couple.

With one set down, and still some time before the others arrived we did a food run and I boshed together some vegan curry for everyone. We fed everyone for £15, a fraction of what takeouts would have cost. Nice.

Once everything kicked off properly, and the shoot schedule had effectively been torn up, I just kept back and let everyone crack on and took a few behind the scenes things. I prefer keeping things casual anyway, and given that I was in a room with a bunch of people I’d not met in person before, this approach suited me just fine.

After a while I got chance to shoot Sophie. I’ve known of Sophie and talked with her a little over the past few months or so through the likes of Instagram and Facebook and we’ve tried to meet up a couple time before but it never worked out. Well this time it did and it was rad and here’s some photos.

With that it was getting late and we were winding down for a chill out the back looking at the stars before bed.

I took the sofa and was up at 5:30/6am. Which is fucking nonsense. One by one everyone woke up and after a few brews we cracked on with a few more shoots during breakfast before getting gone.

Sarah & Sophie had some Alium Cult shirts they wanted to wear.

Then I finished my morning with another shoot with Sarah just incase I wasn’t able to recover the ones from the evening before. I’m glad we did shoot because there was a golden glow coming into the room thanks to the morning sun.

I’m going to stop the blog here because it feels like I’ve posted more than enough, but believe me there’s way more photos that are going to be available through Alium and all the involved models/photographers Patreon accounts, and even myself on OnlyFans.

So yeah, that’s me done. Now I’ve finally met the folks behind it, I hope to continue to be involved in future meet ups.


I’ve said it not quite a thousand times but definitely a lot and that’s if you want to support me and keep me able to do shit like this then the best way is to back my OnlyFans. It’s only $5 for the month which is stupidly reasonable given that there’s access to over 6,000 photos now (ok, so there’s 300+ on OnlyFans but you also get the password for my private blog).

Dalby Forest.

I haven’t actively been out to take photos since Wales and yesterday was the first time I actually felt like picking up my camera since then. I found a double that I forgot I had laying around of the lens I threw in the sea, so that was a nice surprise, but my 18 f2 is still missing…

I headed to meet Robyn and the dogs with the 35.

Robyn, Dalby-1

It was pissing it down when I set off, but the sun came out in full force by the time we were walking.

I took a bunch of photos and only got a handful that are passable for the blog, but I’m not gonna dwell on that because at least I’m getting out again.

To Wales and back.

I haven’t posted an actual blog in a long while, and it’s not for lack of doing things to write about. I’ve been all over… had another stint in Prague and covered a festival and hung out with friends, then back in the UK I travelled to Sunderland and Newcastle to shoot and catch up with various friends while also attending a wedding, and also visited Wales. There’s more things in between too, I’m sure. But I’m just having a massively shit time right now, though I feel like I should probably at least post something rather than ignore everything forever.

I’m gonna start with my recent trip to Wales.

The photographer Jazz was travelling down to work with went well out of his way to accommodate us, picking us up and driving us around, and even let us crash in his family home for the few days we were there – his wife even prepared us some vegan meals for our stay. Dynamite.

On the road

We spent a day by the beach, and I found a washed up Jellyfish. It was huge.

Four More Years.

Whenever I leave the country I do my best to fly from Gatwick. My friend Abby lives just a 10 minute drive from it, and going to stay with her for a few days before/after my flights means I get to hang out with her for a decent amount of time while also breaking up my journey a little as I don’t get to travel south as much as I’d like to.

Jazz also happened to be in the area, so she made her way over to Crawley and hung out with us for a couple of days.

The heat was stupid. So I spent the majority of my time looking for the next shady spot to sit for a minute which also coincided nicely with just letting Jazz do her Jazz things.

Abby picked us up from the hotel we were staying in, and we drove to Tilgate Park for a picnic as the sun set.

After the picnic we had a late drive out to the south coast stopping at Lancing Beach as midnight hit, marking Abby being 4 years sober. She’s nailing it. It was dark and I didn’t take my flash and so there’s very little photos but here’s a couple from when we visited again during the afternoon a couple days later.

It was rad to hang with Abby for a few days, especially the day we drove out to Ashdown Forest and just laid in the trees away from everything. Well, as away from everything as you can be until a people in a hot air balloon decide to drop in the field next to you. I weirdly have no photos of that. What am I even doing anymore?

Next stop, Prague!


If you like these photos on this blog then there’s even more over on my Patreon for only $7.50 (along with another 5,000+ photos from my adventures) – So go and sign up so I can pay my way in life.

 

Just walk.

I’m making my way south tomorrow to spend time with a couple of friends before I fly out to Prague on Tuesday for a week.

I’ll be taking my laptop with me and undoubtedly won’t be able to help writing about something and posting some photos while I’m away, but just incase I don’t get chance I’m gonna leave a selection of photos from a couple of recent days out to Goathland with Debby, and Broxa with Robyn. Two rad humans that are down for getting out and walking on the regular.

I can’t stress enough the importance of dragging yer sorry arse out for some time in the sun, or even if the weather is shitty – Honestly, it does you the world of fucking good.

Not just mentally, either. In the past few months of aimlessly roaming about I’ve just weighed in at 19 stone which means I’m 2 stone closer to my target weight. And it’s nice to hate yourself just a little less than usual. Not bad, for a lazy piece of trash eh!

Anyway, photos. GO!

Boggle Hole & Flamborough Head

I was due to head out with Debby for the day to go exploring some woodland but our plans were altered slightly as she’d gotten an injured baby pigeon and that we were gonna have to take it to the Whitby Wildlife Sanctuary.

I’d never seen a baby pigeon before. And for some reason I didn’t take a photo of it, but rest assured they don’t look very pigeon like at all and just look a bit… odd.

After a little mix up with the address (Google lists the location as some blokes house near by, and he’s kinda pissed about people taking dead Hedgehogs his way expecting him to bring them back to life) we headed back and called at Boggle Hole!

Walking my brain back together.

Just taking a short break from writing about the hitching adventure at the moment to focus on a few things I’ve done this past week since being back in Scarborough. Also because I want to post at least once before the end of the month as I have been a bit quiet recently. This is probably going to be a pretty long post but then again I don’t think I’ve had a short post for a while so I guess you’re either used to it or are just happy reading the first half and leaving.

The hitching tour ended for me in Manchester, and I managed to find a bus I could get for free the majority of the way home to Scarborough. Not bad.

The morning after I got back I did a short section of the wolds way walk with my parents.
